Edging issues

Edgings are officially my nemesis. 

I have been trying to edge this vintage hanky FOREVER and let me tell you, I am over it!!

This was my first attempt---it was ok until I got to the corner. 

And then it went wrong--notice how the tiny rings are going everywhere but straight. 

So then this past weekend I went with this...

This one I just tatted straight onto the hanky, and it went ok for rounds one and two, but round three is not playing nicely. 

We'll see what it looks like tomorrow when it's dry...

I'm not holding out too much hope, unfortunately. 


  1. Well worth the "issues", I'd say. Lovely!

  2. That is stunning!

    (p.s. I never heard from you about the mail... .??) 😳

  3. It's possible you're being too fussy? They look good to me, glorious in fact.

  4. They look wonderful - both of them. Edgings can be frustrating, but these are definitely worth a bit of frustration. They are gorgeous.

  5. The first edging looked great, but the second is stunning!!! :)

  6. I like the second edging, and it's going to look a great hanky
